Cartoonist Bill Messner-Loebs Fundraiser

Bill Messner-Loebs’s work in comics was beloved by fans for many years, but the circumstances of his life—illness and injuries—have conspired to make things financially quite difficult.

Recently out of the hospital, Bill and his wife are now facing eviction. You can read the brutal details of his medical and legal situation in his own eloquent and painfully personal words on his Facebook.

William Messner-Loebs is probably best known for writing DC superhero comic books from the late 1980s to the 1990s. I enjoyed his and Sam Kieth’s contemporaneous Epicurus the Sage comics and his earlier cartooning of the adventures of Wolverine MacAlistaire.

For a couple years he scripted the Batman comic strip.

No matter. If you enjoyed his years on The Flash and Wonder Woman or his more independent comics and can spare a few bucks, perhaps you help him out during some hard times.

A GoFundMe has been set up for comics fans to assist a deserving cartoonist.
